TiC-based coatings have proven to be very suitable candidates in various areas of thermal spraying when high corrosion and wear resistance is required. The most important advantages of these coatings are their high corrosion resistance compared to conventional coatings such as WC+Co and WC+Co+Cr, but also their low density. However, the main problem with HVOF spraying these materials is their high reactivity with the oxygen necessary for the flame. In this paper, Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis-TiC+Ni-Ti base powder are processed with two different spray guns (Diamond Jet Hybrid (DJH) and CDS 100). This allows to compare the properties of the resultant coatings (wear and corrosion mainly) as a consequence of the main advantages of each variable (gun and gas) particularly in relation to the oxidation processes. It is observed that DJH coatings showed the best corrosion resistance whilst CDS coatings showed a corrosion potential closer to the steel value. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
